Medieval Carnivale

By Susannah Holmes | May 30, 2017
Medieval Carnivale
Juggling, minstrels, archery and puppetry... experience medieval merriment, at Sandgate State School’s Carnivale!

Begin the day with an espresso coffee and treats from the home bake stall and pull up a seat at one of the many activity tents. Choose from face painting, free paper crown making, or design and decorate your very own shield and sword set.

Get into the theme and join the free juggling workshop in your finest medieval threads. Best costume prizes for children and adults, means men-in-tights sightings are likely!

Over sevens can use longbows and wooden arrows with expert guidance from a medieval re-enactment group who have operated an archery range at the Abbey Medieval Festival for 10 years. Pick up a bow and arrow and try your hand at hitting the target!

Two shows from ‘Professor Wallace’s Puppet Theatre’, featuring Punch and Judy; traditional wooden hand puppets, marionettes and modern Muppets, with both performances including tons of audience interaction.

Primary school students in the local bayside area are competing for cash prizes in the second annual, BIG Talent Quest held from 11:30 am, centre stage. A variety of talent from the kids will entertain even the nastiest knight.

Rainbow Street’s Building Block Studio are participating and invite you to build and add your own lance to jousting robots and see who wins the tournament. Will your mini-figure survive the test?

All winners drawn for the Big Raffle will be announced that afternoon, vying for $1000 cash, a Family Day Pass to Woodford Folk Festival 2017/18, and a Family Day Pass to the Abbey Medieval Festival 2017, to name only a few amazing prizes, plus a cent auction!

The new ‘Wipeout Challenge’ fair ride is booked with old favourites like the bouncy castle. Satisfy more than your sweet tooth with lunch foods to keep tummies happy.

Families, show your support for this Sandgate event and enjoy a fun day out with your children, right on your doorstep!
